NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

Wild card slots:

1) New York Giants - 8-4 (vs. Eagles)
2) Arizona Cardinals - 6-6 (vs. Seahawks)

Top contenders:

Detroit Lions - 6-6 (vs. Cowboys)
Minnesota Vikings - 6-6 (vs. 49ers)
Washington Redskins - 6-7 (vs. Giants *next week*)

Questions:

Who would we need to win between New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles? Since the Giants have Eagles, Redskins, Bills, and Patriots for their last 4 games...Should we go for the Giants to fall to 8-8? Should we go with the Giants to just pretty much automatically kick the Eagles out of the wildcard picture like the Bears this past Thursday?

If the Cardinals, Vikings, and Lions lose this weekend. Would this just mean that the Redskins will be tied for the wildcard spot with the Vikings with wins over the Lions and Cardinals?

It is kind of confusing with all these teams close together. If the 5-7 teams win this weekend...they will pull up to 6-7...and if the top wild card contenders fall to 6-7..we have a bigger situation...Maybe it is too hard to tell who is going to be in the 2nd wild card spot currently if this does happen!

Root for Philly, Zona, the Vikes, and Detroit to all lose.

We're not catching NY.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

Minny is probably gonna beat SF this weekend to go to 7-6, Detroit is probably gonna fall to Dallas so they will be 6-7. Since us and Detroit will be 6-7 we will be ahead of them due to tiebreakers. We need to beat the Giants next week to go to 7-7. Our biggest obstacle will be Minny because they are on fire right now and we play them in two weeks, we have to win that game if we want to make the playoffs. I don't know who Minny plays next week but we need for them to lose that game to go to 7-7, and then the week after that we play them so if we win that game we will go into the 6th seed. I'm completely ignoring Arizona in this picture but I don't think they are going to be a big obstacle, they play Seattle today and they are most likely gonna lose and if they do we will be ahead of them due to tiebreakers as well.

Well, if NY does lose this week, and we win out...then we do catch them. They still have NE on their schedule, and we have a head to head game with them.

So it doesn't really matter who wins the Philly-NYG game. If Philly wins it, and we do our job, we have the 5 seed in the NFC.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

Its not all that hard to get in. Arizona is a team that can win out which would put us out of it because of NY. However, NY isn't definitely in. They can lose 3 of their last 4. If they lose today and lose to us they will probably fall behind us because they play the bills and the pats in the last two weeks. One thing you can always count on is a second half of the season collapse from the giants.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

It seems like people are having mixed feelings on who do we need to win for the Giants/Eagles game.

If the Eagles win...it is a good chance the Giants can have an end of the season collapse cuz their last games are pretty difficult w/ Eagles, Redskins, Bills, and Patriots. The Giants would be 8-8 which open up more things.

If the Giants win, they clinche the wildcard and the Eagles will be tied with the redskins with a division 2-3 over the redskins 1-3. This will stiffen things up more in the final wildcard spot.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

What I know is that the lions have to loose and I'm worry cuz I'm watching the game right now, they are leading and playing pretty damn well. They are leading 20-7 before halftime.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

Yeah I def. had Dallas winning this game, and i'm suprised Detroit is up 20-7. If they win they are making things a lot more harder for us.

20-14 Detroit at the half. Dallas seems to be heating up.

Re: NFC Wildcard picture this weekend.

Heres how I see it right now, NY will probably finish 10-6, losing to NE and either us or Philly. Philly is outplaying them right now, NY Giants, that is. If the iggles beat them,think we can catch them, with a win next week, because they would finish at 2-4 in division. We win out and we finish 9-7 too and are 3-3 in the division. Zona is gonna lose, Minnesota can drop a easy one, and Detroit may never win again. We can have a chance. I am more confident in our team in the Dallas game than the other 2. Those teams are fighting for their lives. Dallas can clinch today, and wont have anything left to play for. The teams that are closest are 5-7 Carolina, and New Orleans. They could both give another loss and be out, which could make things simpler, because if the 6-6 teams all lose, and we win out, its ours.
